Bournemouth winger Marc Pugh is considering a new three-and-a-half-year contract offer from the club.

The 24-year-old has been one of the Cherries' best performers over the last 18 months and has notched nine goals from 25 appearances this campaign.

Pugh told BBC Radio Solent: "It's very flattering that the club want to offer me a new deal and a real compliment.

"I'm going to discuss it with my agent and my family and I'm sure everything will turn out for the best."

He added: "It shows that I've been doing well but I also feel there's much more to come from me.

"The club have shown real ambition with their signings so we'll just have to see what happens."

Pugh arrived at Dean Court in June 2010 after stints with Bury, Shrewsbury and Hereford.

Manager Lee Bradbury is confident he can hold on to one of his most prized assets.

"Marc has been great for us. He scores goals, creates goals and works really hard for the team," he said.

"There's not many wingers who have nine goals to their name before mid-December.

"He is the sort of player I'd like to have at the club for a long time. We wouldn't be interested in selling him."

The Cherries recorded an impressive 1-0 win at promotion-chasing Huddersfield on Saturday to move to six points off the play-offs.
